THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRUE MAN OF GOD AND A FALSE PROPHET





Leggy, i told you this picture would be a better one. See, I can balance out the pictures I use.
So guys, yall know my personality on this blog. I say stuff that sometimes provokes thought or in more cases it draws the ire of some people. My point is this, I challenge everything even my own beliefs, I contradict myself daily and I damn sure would not die for none of my beliefs because I might be wrong. Simple and short, I keep an extremely OPEN MIND. And most people usually say that they have "open minds" but why is it when you criticise those very people's beliefs, they now start to vex? Like forreal, if anybody criticised anything I believed in, I would honestly listen to what they had to say. There is no belief that I hold that close to heart, that I would not be willing to listen to it being criticised. But with most of you religious people, it's like yall cannot bear to have your beliefs questioned. Why is that?
Anywayz sha, back to my main point. Yesterday, after watching the soul awards on BET, Pastor Joel Osteen came on and he was preaching and stuff. So anywayz, i went on facebook and my friend put this on her status "Joel Osteen is a true man of God and he is a blessing", now I have no problem with her status, but then somebody else now came on her status and said that Joel Osteen was not a true man of God because he refused to condemn homosexuality hence, Joel Osteen was a false prophet.
The statement made by this person had me laughing my head off, so please yall remember the story of Ted Haggard, he was the evangelist who was disgraced after he was discovered sleeping with a male prostitute. My point is, if nobody had discovered that this man had been sleeping with a male prostitute, he would have continued to be seen as a "TRUE MAN OF GOD"? Mind you, this very same evangelist had been the same one who had blasted homosexuals and homosexuality, he was the very same evangelist who said said homosexuals were headed to hell. Now, that it was discovered that he was ehn a homosexual leaning individual himself, suddenly he had become a false prophet in the minds of all his congregation. Can you imagine, from being a TRUE MAN OF GOD he had gone to being a FALSE PROPHET. Chai, how the mighty have fallen, see how easy it is for a "True man of God" to fall down to the level of a "False Prophet"? Anywayz, am sure yall now see my point.
Now unto another thing I was thinking about earlier today, when a human being claims to be three people in one, the doctors diagnose such a person as suffering from "Multiple-Personality Disorder" but when a God claims to be a father, son and Holy Spirit basically three people in one, it is diagnosed as a "HOLY TRINITY", and when an individual like myself questions such a line of reasoning, people call me an atheist lmao. But please can you guys follow my train of thought, if God can be three people in one, why can't some of the human beings who he "created in his own image" also be three people in one? I mean, if anybody is suffering from a disorder it should be the "Creator" not the "Creation". But now, I say something like this and people will say "I cannot believe you would say such a thing", but why not? I have made a fairly reasonable and logical argument against something but most of you will still disagree with my logic. And everyone is definitely entitled to disagree with my logic, but I would implore all of to prove to me that your disagreement with my argument makes logical sense. If your going to disagree with me, don't tell me that the ways of God are not the ways of Man. . I saw this quote on Blasphemy's facebook page and thought I would share "

lol,na wa oh.
the false prophet, good prophet thing...na them sabi.biko,me i just listen to their preachings,learn something and move on.

Azazel said...

Ah Leggy but u also have to look @ the messenger before u think about receiving the message.
if the messenger is from devil nko, but his message is good. Will you still accept it? Or learn from it?

leggy said...

but all of them claim to be from the Lord no?
so i try not to decide for myself which one is the good prophet and the bad prophet, if someone is telling me to kill someone ofcourse i wont listen to that person but if the person is teaching basically on good overcoming evil...well, i dont care if you are good or bad, i take the message.

Azazel said...

But what if it's God's message for u to kill the person?
Leggy don't mind me, i get what ur saying. I myself, am trying to figurre out which one is true and which one is false. It seems like the only true ones are the ones who avoid any controversy @ all. They say the right things, they smile @ the right times, they pray and speak in tongues @ the drop of the hat... But all these are facades

I guess people say that from what they see and know but who is Omnipresent but God. Only him knows the heart(s) of men...

Azazel said...

Lol Myne u are really wise, but yes only God can know the hearts of men..
But do u trust the hearts of the men that wrote the bible?

Okay so I am not going to go into the whole trinity thing, but I appreciate that you are open minded and I too want to be more open "eared", but stand by those things which i believe in...you get me?

As per christianity and religion. Sigh I am a christian more specifically a Catholic, alot of people bash the catholic church and what have you, but one reason why I like no love being catholic (rule out its history for a second aight) its because it realizes that we are all sinners and tries not to hide it. When I go to confession the priest is telling me you are gonna go to hell or give me a guilt trip, they speak encouraging words that will try to lead one back on the right track.

I hate people that make it seem that they are the holiest people in the world and condemn pastors that are also human. so what if he didn't condemn homosexuality. I do not believe in homosexuality, and I know its wrong. but should I condemn that person to hell? No you don;t know what that person is dealing with, if they are fighting with that style of life and etc... Who are you to judge, isn't judging a sin...don't get me started. I too have issues of being judgemental at times....but i make a conscience effort to not be at times. anyway i could go on for days, lol...

I hate when people say they are open minded and proceed to shout you down when you say something they don't agree with. Just be shouting all over the place!

There's one mallam I know, before he starts preaching he will say 'Do what I say and not what I do' because the man knows what a naughty fellow he is but he is still a mallam o! Let nobody say he is not a mallam lmao!

Azazel said...

@ Soul Bouique..
Are u willing to die for those beliefs??

@ X
Lol @ the mallam story.. So funny. Do wat I say, don't do what I do

StandTall-The Activist said...

I am reading the Da Vinci Code at the moment and once again, I begin to question seriously. Issue of faith is a serious matter and it will do us a great good to know that even Godly people aren't perfect.

Azazel said...

U are definitely right it wud pay to remember that supposedly godly men are not perfect..

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog

100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
